Dear coreutils team,

I have coreutils 8.11 installed on my system via Arch Linux packages and have 
experienced some unexpected behaviour of the "du" utility. When I execute

du -hs . .git

in a folder that contains some files and a subfolder named ".git" the output I 
get is

194M    .

The output I would expect is

194M    .
97M     .git

If I change the order of the arguments to read

du -hs .git .

I get the output

97M     .git
97M     .

which again is not the desired result and in fact wrong because the reported 
size for '.' is 97M whereas a simple `du -hs .` reveals the size of '.' as 
194M. It would be great if you could fix this bug or tell me what I did wrong 
here. :)

Keep up your great work!

Greetings from Germany, Edgar Kalkowski

No, it's expected.  In the NEWS file, it's the first bug
fix listed under coreutils 8.6.
